Compliments CWC's Culinary Arts program.
Hotel and Restaurant Management
 If you imagine working in the hospitality, hotel or restaurant industry, the CWC Hotel and Restaurant program is a great place to begin.

With more than 4,000 hotel rooms, over 100 restaurants and many art galleries, Jackson Hole has truly become America's greatest tourist destination. Blessed with two high seasons with the Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks during the summer and Jackson Hole Mountain Ski Resort during the winter, Jackson Hole offers the finest hospitality experience and serves as a great learning laboratory for Central Wyoming College's Hotel and Restaurant Management Program.

Students in the program are exposed to the breadth of the hospitality services while presented with an opportunity to specialize in the area of hotel and restaurant management.   
Associate of Applied Science
    In this two-year program, you will develop the essential skills in hotel and restaurant management. Students develop proficiency in "front and back of the house" for the hotel industry, as well as learning sales and marketing, accounting, property management systems, facilities management, menu development, food safety and written communications. Restaurant management, food and beverage control are also part of the curriculum.
    We are also offering practical experience in internships in five star and five diamond resorts in Jackson Hole and Teton Village.
